Who wouldn’t want to start the morning with a breakfast cookie? The basic recipe for these calls for Kellogg’s Origins Muesli and it’s perfectly delicious. But if you’re looking to get even craftier, you can add in a few tablespoons of the Kellogg’s Origins Granola or Kellogg’s Origins Cereal if you want even more crunch!! Just add in 3-4 tablespoons at the same time you add the chocolate chips. You can easily make these without the butter if you want! Instead of 1 cup of butter, use ½ cup of date paste + ¼ cup of plain yogurt and you’ll be good to go! Plus that gives these an extra dose of fiber! If you replace the butter, keep an eye on the baking time, as these will only need 10-12 minutes in the oven. Replacing the butter will give the cookie a spongier consistency.

These cookies are both crisp and chewy. They can be frozen after they're iced for real convenience. With two small children, that's a great way to have my baking done ahead of time for holidays or special occasions. For more recipes, visit Taste of Home

For years, this was a recipe I didn't let out of my kitchen — I don't know why, but everybody has one or two recipes like that. I finally relented and gave a copy to Rick Bishop, Milk Bar's favorite strawberry farmer, and he told me he hid it under his kitchen sink, where he knew it would be safe.

Sugar Cookies
This basic cookie recipe is very well tried and trusted – great for when you want something to go with a cup of coffee or you just like having a fail-safe play in the kitchen. I don’t like making huge batches of cookies because, quite frankly, I will just sit down and eat them in one fell swoop – call it portion control or a distinct lack of will power, but small batches always work for me. Of course, if you have guests or are baking for a crowd, simply double, triple or quadruple the quantities to suit. Just don’t skip the refrigeration step or your cookies will fall more than a little flat. Once chilled, the dough keeps in the fridge for up to 1 week, so you can have freshly baked cookies in around 20 minutes. And check out the variations, too – there’s something for everyone… personally, I like the stuffed sandwiches the best but maybe that’s because I’m greedy. Enjoy! — Aine Carlin, Keep it Vegan.

Molasses Cookies
I love these cookies! Someone might call them gingersnaps but they aren't… the molasses is distinct in their flavor and does complement the ginger perfectly. They are something we make in the fall and serve with apples but also a stable of our Christmas cookie jar. They are best if they aren't allowed to completely dry out… crisp on the outside and chewy on the inside… perfect!

Sugar Cookies
Everyone loves a good, iced sugar cookie. If you’re looking for a dough that isn’t overly sweet (since it will be topped with sugary royal icing) and easy to work with, this is your new go-to recipe. Patti Paige, author of You Can’t Judge a Cookie By Its Cutter, has some great ideas for using her sugar cookie dough, too.

Satisfaction is a fruit-and-cheese plate all in one cookie. Whether served before or after a meal, this sumptuous soft cookie with a light nut crunch perfectly complements a bubbly wine. If you’re making this recipe with a mild blue cheese, use pears. For a strong blue cheese, use peaches.
